Team Building Event Tip: Move it Off-site

Leave Your Work Now Moving your team building event away from the workplace or conference site increases engagement, removes distractions, and allows your employees to relax and invest more in the experience. . We’ve found that our clients have a much higher attendance rate when they shift their team events to an offsite venue like a park or hotel. Work comes with a lot of responsibilities and distractions for your team members when they’re onsite. It can be hard to say no to a last minute request from a coworker in a different department. That  todo list is sooooo close if they just snuck away for 10 minutes. Shifting the event to a different venue helps focus your team members on the experience allowing them to give themselves permission to relax and enjoy. This is key to having a successfull team event no matter if it’s team bonding or team building.

Orange County Team Building Idea: Huntington Beach

Three legged race team buildingWelcome to the Original Surf City! Huntington Beach is a beautiful location for team building in Orange County. It’s not just because they’ve got gorgeous beaches. You’ll find the tourist friendly local culture perfect for your sales conference or company meeting.  Venue or activity space is a huge consideration with team building events and you’ll find plenty in this seaside town. The 4 most common team building venues we work in are Hotel Event Spaces, Beaches, Parks and Downtown or Pedestrian areas.

Hotel Event Spaces

Thanks to the beachfront Waterfront Hilton, The Hyatt, and the Shorebreak Hotel there are some beautiful resort settings for your team event. We’ve produced events in their conference rooms, lawns, and ballrooms. Hotels have the built in advantage of easy access to amenities like catered food and drink and customer service. The staff at all three of these locations treat everyone like a local so you’ll feel right at home.

Beaches

Want to move offsite? Walk across the street, historic Pacific Coast Highway, and you’re at the beach. Unlike south county beaches, we can accommodate any size group on the sand in HB. They are perfect for our  Adaptation Event, team olympics, group excursions, and beach specific activities like sand castle building competitions.

Parks

If you don’t want sand in your shoes Huntington Central Park is a fantastic location for team team building events in Orange County. The beautiful tree lined walking paths make a great playing field for our Reality Rally, Iron Team Challenge, or a round of frisbee golf at their world famous course.

Downtown

Huntington Beach has a quaint beachside main street and pier area that we’ve used for some crazy fun team scavenger hunts and Throwdown Rallys. Your group will have a great time hunting for clues, chasing points, and trying to outdo the other teams on the streets of HB.
